Maximises renewable energy production while producing high-quality effluent.

Memthane® is an anaerobic membrane bioreactor (AnMBR) that maximises renewable energy production while producing excellent-quality effluent that can be reused or discharged directly to sewer. This new leading-edge technology, developed by Veolia Water Technologies' subsidiary Biothane, delivers a unique, small footprint solution that offers many benefits, including reducing disposal costs while generating valuable biogas.

In addition, Memthane® offers significant total operating cost reduction compared to conventional technologies, taking into account all elements, including membranes, chemicals, sludge disposal and overall energy savings. This simple, single, fully automated reactor system also provides the option of remote control.

What is an Anaerobic Membrane Bioreactor?

Anaerobic membrane bioreactor technology (AnMBR) combines the advantages of anaerobic treatment with membrane separation using a membrane bioreactor (MBR). Physical separation membranes are used in conjunction with anaerobic digestion to remove the maximum amount of organics while delivering the highest volume of biogas. AnMBR technology is ideal for the treatment of wastewater streams and slurry with high concentrations of organic matter, solids, fat, oil and grease.
